Mihai Andrici,

Samsung has just launched a new video teaser for the upcoming Galaxy S6 flagship, and this time around the South Korean manufacturer made it absolutely clear that the handset will feature a metal construction of some sort. If you've been keeping tabs on mobile news, then this shouldn't come as a surprise to you, as the upcoming Galaxy S6 was often rumored to feature a metallic build. The video does not reveal if the Galaxy S6 will come with an all-metal build like the smartphones in the Galaxy A series, or if the handset will come with a metal frame a la Galaxy Note 4. Whichever turns out to be the case, the Galaxy S6 will be the first smartphone in the Galaxy S series to feature a metallic build.

Aside from its focus on metal, the recent video teaser doesn't reveal anything else. According to multiple rumors and leaks, the Samsung Galaxy S6 will be equipped with hardware such as an octa-core Exynos 7420 chipset, 3GB of RAM, either a 20MP or a 16MP primary camera, a 2600 mAh battery with wireless charging abilities, as well as stereo front-facing speakers. On the software side, the Galaxy S6 is said to run Android 5.0 Lollipop overlaid with a new version of TouchWiz that ditches bloatware in favor of improved performance. Furthermore, the Galaxy S6 is likely to be joined on stage at MWC 2015 by a Galaxy S6 Edge version, one rumored to come with two curved edges.

Some rumors suggest that Samsung won't waste too much time in bringing its new flagship smartphone to the market. Although we can' confirm this info yet, some sources say that the Galaxy S6 release date could come on March 22nd. With a week to go until Samsung unveils the Galaxy S6, it won't be long before we can move past rumors and on to exact technical details.
